At The Law Offices of Dorie A. Rogers in California, we understand that domestic violence is not always about violence. It is also about one person exercising power and control over another person. If you have suffered physical or emotional abuse, or have been falsely accused of domestic violence, we can help.
Domestic violence can occur between individuals who are dating, married or in a family relationship. It is not limited to race or gender or income level. Domestic violence can include any of the following in an attempt for one person to dominate another:
- Harassment, including harassment by phone, text messages or e-mail
- Threats to injure a party or pet
- Hitting, choking or slapping
- Withholding finances
- Stalking or keeping under surveillance
